Accessibility & Disability Services Committee


Charged by the Chief Academic Officers, the SOCHE Accessibility & Disability Services Committee is responsible for:

  • Exploring collaboration in the areas of disability services to respond to students’ requests for accommodations, ADA compliance and cross-registration issues
  • Providing and offering professional support and renewal for those who wish to enhance student, faculty and staff success through involvement in an inter-institutional and interdisciplinary community of peers
  • Identifying trends and issues that affect teaching and learning, and prepare faculty and staff to meet them
  • Engaging members of the academic community in the collaborative, scholarly practice of supporting the needs of people with disabilities.

Formerly known as the “Disability Services Committee,” the group voted in spring 2023 to change the committee title to be more inclusive and indicative of the services they provide to students. Thus, the committee title was changed to “Accessibility & Disability Services Committee.”

Scheduled Meetings

The SOCHE Accessibility & Disability Services Committee meets in a virtual environment approximately three times per year, with other meetings as requested. Contact Mindy Claggett by email at mindy.claggett@soche.org for all upcoming meeting dates and to join this committee.

Councils & Committees

SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 16 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
